Ensure you have the Divi Theme installed and activated prior to installing the child theme. After you have the Divi Theme installed and activated, go ahead install your new child theme.
After purchase, download the ‘.zip’ file from your ‘My Account’ page at https://www.peeayecreative.com (or the marketplace you purchased from) or click the download link in your purchase confirmation email and save the file to your computer. Be sure to unzip the folder that says ‘UNZIPME‘.
Child Theme Installation
Again in your WordPress Dashboard, go to ‘Appearance>Themes>Add New’ and click on ‘Upload Theme’. Locate the ‘.zip’ file on your computer and click ‘Install Now’.
When the install is complete click on ‘Activate’, you will then see the Divi Excavating Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.
Layout Pack Installation
The layout pack comes with an installer plugin. In your WordPress Dashboard, go to ‘Plugins>Add New’ and click on ‘Upload Plugin’. Locate the ‘.zip’ file on your computer and click ‘Install Now’.
When the install is complete click on ‘Activate Plugin’.
On the left-hand side, you will see the new menu item called Divi Excavating. Hover over this and click ‘Easy Demo Import’.
Next, you will see options on which items to import. For a new installation, keep everything selected and click ‘Import Demo Content’.
Customizing The Site
At this point, your website will look a lot like the demo at https://demos.peeayecreative.com/divi-winery, except for a few things that you still need to set up.
For one thing, unfortunately The Events Calendar does not import the demo events, so you will not see any events showing on the Events page or the blog sidebar until you add some events.
You will need to set up WooCommerce on your own, which is beyond the scope of the product. Thankfully, the importer does import products, so those should appear fine. NOTE: Be sure the Shop Module on the home page and Our Wines page has the correct categories selected so that the products show up.
One thing that you will need to adjust is the Instagram feed, which is in a global section at the bottom of the pages. Since the shortcode is trying to use the feed ID that was used on the demo, it will be different for you. You may need to go to ‘Dashboard>Instagram Feed’ and create a new feed connected to your account. Then, copy the shortcode and paste it into the global footer section where the old Instagram shortcode is located.
Text & Images
The only thing left to do is replace the text with your own and the placeholder images with your own images. You may now customize anything on the site including the logo, images, color schemes, fonts, layout, etc. Divi makes it super easy to do all of this, but some the styling you see is from the CSS file.
